At a Mic event on Wednesday with actress and New York gubernatorial hopeful Cynthia Nixon, Democratic House nominee socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to her attack on Israel earlier in the week.

Ocasio-Cortez “thought it was funny” that conservatives called her out for speaking on a topic that she admitted she doesn’t understand, as Shane Goldmacher, the New York Times’ Metro Desk chief political correspondent, shared on Twitter.

After admitting her lack of knowledge on the state of Israel, Ocasio-Cortez added that in order to be better informed, she is learning from “Palestinian rights organizations.”

“Palestinian rights organizations.” You mean like Hamas?

Editor’s note: The title of this article has been updated to add Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s name.
